Conclusion: You win some and you lose some. However, in the case of the James Bond franchise...you win one you lose the rest. This was a brave departure from the beat-the-dead-horse, FPS Bond titles of the past. However, as with ALL EA games (AND I MEAN ALL) there is a bland, formulaic, want-to-bash-your-head-on-the-floor for being duped into buying another craptacular PS2 port type of feeling. Can we all see where this is going????? I had high hopes and I wanted to love this game.
Conclusion: Overhyped, overpriced, and overbudget. Mediocre graphics+small levels+boring gameplay+no use of the harddrive for graphic improvements+no LIVE play=yet another Playstation 2 port. Its obvious most of the development budget went into getting the actors when it could have been better spent on the development of a longer, better quality game. It becomes more evident EA is in the buisness of making games strictly for the profit and not innovating them.
